Powerpoint 2008 crashing/quitting and Update not installing
Hi there, just bought Office 2008 for Mac and powerpoint is crashing all the
time- I'm using some movies in the presentation. This is maddening. So, I
downloaded the latest update (SP1) as well as update 12.1.9, and neither will
install- I get this error message:
"You cannot install Office 2008 12.1.9 Update on this volume. A version of
the software required to install this update was not found on this volume."
Just installed Office 2008, legit version with serials and everything, works
fine (except for powerpoint issue). So what software am I missing, and why

"...Reserved Words Issue
I have a query which runs fine and returns what I want to see from a table
with columns using the words "Full" and "Function" which I did not realise
were reserved words in access. When i add a text box to a report with the

use these words? I really dont want to have to change all the database etc.

I went Page Layout tab, Page Borders, Borders Tab, clicked Box, clicked the
drop down menu and selected Apply to Paragraph, clicked OK. I have a border
around my text. However, as I didn't choose the custom border, there is a
bottom border line where the paragraph spans more than one page. the result
is that I'll have a border on one page and a border around the remaining
part of the paragraph on the next page. I know how to take care of this
problem. However, to get there, I need to get rid of the border.

I've read that some add-ins--particularly those that take charge of your
defaults--can prevent the paste options button from appearing. Do you have
an add-in called "set default view" or something similar? If so, try
removing the add-in and see if that fixes it.
Sometimes, turning it on/off can spontaneously fix a stuck registry setting.

hi from a newbee
As said in the title : how to select just a word by a double click in a
textbox and show it in a label. I tried a lot of thing without success. Can
somebody help me showing me good links or else?
The short form of the answer is: in the MouseDoubleClick event handler for
your textbox (TTT), set text property of your label (LLL) to the selected
text in TTT, eg by
LLL.Text = Trim(TTT.SelectedText)
The purpose of Trim() is that the default function of double click is to
select the word under the cursor and all trailing spaces. I checked...Emailing Word doc as an attachment
Hi everyone and thanks for any help you can offer. One of you guys always
seems to have the answer I need.
I'm running XP Pro and Office 2007.
I have my email set up in Outlook so that when I create a new blank email it
already has my signature block in the document.
When I'm working in Word and want to send the doc I'm working as an email
attachment, I go to the MS button, select Send as an attachment and it opens
a blank Email message with the Word doc already attached. Great - except the
email message does not have my default signature block.

If I open Word or Excel before clicking on the attachement to open it, then
it works. This problem only happens when using my laptop which is running
Windows Vista and office 2007. I do not have any problems with this on our

In previous versions of Word this was relatively easy. I'm pretty adept with

someone confirm or enlighten me?
I don't like the indents that Word 2007 imposes on bulleted and numbered
lists -- it wastes a lt of space and for me is difficult to visually scan. I
prefer my first levels of bullets (or numbers) to appear so that the bullet
is lined up with the left margin with a hanging indent of 0.25". Then I like
the second level of bullets to be at 0.25" with a hanging indent of 0.5",

You need to tell us what you've tried. "Many ways" doesn't give us much to
go on. Try building an ODBC named connection (DSN) to a SQL-Server database.

There used to be a feature under Tools that allowed you to count the
characters in a highlighted portion of text (similar to the len= formula in
Excel). Does anyone know if this is doable in Outlook 2007?
Yes, its on the Spelling button at the end of the message ribbon.
